NVIDIA delivers the best-ever leap generation with GeForce RTX Series GPUs

Powered by NVIDIA Ampere architecture, 2nd generation RTX delivers up to 2x performance over Turing for real-time ray tracing and AI gaming

SANTA CLARA, CA, September 1, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - NVIDIA today unveiled GeForce RTX ™ 30 Series GPUs, powered by NVIDIA Ampere architecture, making the biggest leap ever in GeForce® history.


By breaking performance records, the GeForce RTX 3090, 3080, and 3070 GPUs provide up to twice the performance and 1.9 times the power efficiency compared to the previous generation Turing-based. The second-generation GPUs take advantage of NVIDIA RTX ™ - the world's most powerful PC gaming platform - to deliver unprecedented levels of real-time ray tracing and AI gaming.


The RTX 30 Series was unveiled during a hypothetical launch event of NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang, who also announced that Fortnite, the pop culture gaming phenomenon, is running real-time ray tracing for RTX, adding four ray tracing features for a more immersive gaming experience , Including reflections, shadows, global lighting, and ambient occlusion.


Huang also revealed powerful new gamer tools, including NVIDIA Reflex, which make rival players faster; NVIDIA Omniverse Machinima, for real-time video game storytelling with computer graphics engines; And NVIDIA Broadcast, which leverages artificial intelligence to turn any room into a home broadcast studio.


"The launch of NVIDIA Ampere GPUs today is a giant step towards the future," Huang said. "Working for thousands of years of engineering, the GeForce RTX 30 Series makes the greatest leap ever in generations. NVIDIA RTX integrates programmable shading, ray tracing, and artificial intelligence for developers to create brand new worlds. Twenty years from now, we'll look back and realize that the future of gaming starts here." .


Masterpieces of NVIDIA Ampere architecture - the second generation RTX

Enabling the superior performance of the new RTX 30 Series GPUs and NVIDIA Ampere architecture is cutting-edge technology and more than two decades of graphics research and development, including:


New Streaming Multiprocessors: The building block for the world's fastest and most efficient GPU, which delivers twice the FP32 throughput of the previous generation, and 30 Shader-TFLOPS of processing power.

2nd Generation RT Cores: New dedicated RT cores provide twice the throughput of the previous generation, plus simultaneous beam tracking, shading and computation, with 58 RT-TFLOPS processing power.

3rd Generation Tensor Cores: New dedicated Tensor cores, with up to 2x the throughput of the previous generation, making them faster and more efficient to run AI-powered technologies, such as NVIDIA DLSS, and 238 Tensor-TFLOPS in processing power.

NVIDIA RTX IO: Enables fast GPU-based loading and decompression of game assets, resulting in I / O performance acceleration by up to 100x compared to hard disk drives and traditional storage APIs. In combination with Microsoft's new DirectStorage for Windows API, (1) RTX IO unloads dozens of CPU cores from work to RTX GPU, which improves frame rates and allows near-instant game loading.

World's Fastest Graphics Memory: NVIDIA worked with Micron to create the world's fastest discrete graphics memory for the RTX 30 series, GDDR6X. (2) Provides data speeds close to the 1 TB / s system memory bandwidth for graphics card applications, maximizing gaming and application performance.

Next-generation processing technology: Samsung's new 8N NVIDIA dedicated process, which enables higher transistor density and greater efficiency.

RTX comes to Fortnite, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

Pop culture phenomenon Fortnite is the latest blockbuster RTX game, joining Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and a slew of AAA titles, such as Cyberpunk 2077, Dying Light 2 and Watch Dogs: Legion.


Other titles that already ship with ray tracing support are Control and Minecraft with RTX Beta for Windows 10 and Wolfenstein: Youngblood. Additionally, ray tracing is supported in industry standard APIs including Microsoft DirectX Raytracing and Vulkan, as well as in game engines that developers use to create games, including Unreal Engine, Unity, Frostbite, ID Tech, Northlight, and Luminous Engine, 4A Engine, and more.


DLSS: AI-powered game acceleration

NVIDIA DLSS, one of the biggest graphics breakthroughs of the past decade, is using the deep learning neural network supported by RTX Tensor Cores. When enabled, DLSS - supported exclusively on GeForce RTX GPUs - improves performance in titles like Control and Minecraft with RTX for Windows 10 and Death Stranding, while creating native-resolution images. DLSS will head to Boundary, Bright Memory Infinite, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Cyberpunk 2077, Fortnite, Ready or Not, Scavengers and Watch Dogs: Legion. For those with more powerful PC configurations, the new Ultra Performance Mode enables DLSS to run up to 8K.


New ways to play

NVIDIA also announced three new technologies designed to enhance the experiences of gamers, broadcasters, esports professionals and creatives:


NVIDIA Reflex: Get competitive right away. Players strive to achieve the lowest computer latency possible
